The layoffs have only just begun; when will they end?

 

By Kevin “Coach” Collins

It didn’t take long. The layoffs and closings are piling up. The saddest thing about compiling this list is that by the time today is over, the list will probably have grown dramatically. The next saddest part is that at least some of these lay off employees voted for Barack Obama because they didn’t believe this would happen.  

These are more than just headlines. Every number represents  real people who have lost their livelihood.

  1. and here is barrack’s appreciation for your vote and support-and here you go you no good hillbilly redneck calling me a traitor-here is revenge-you fine workers are laid off -and the biggest paradox is in the whitehouse-an enigma-total lack of logic-an indonesian citizen over-rides national security and massive prosecution-hides and “legally seals?” his records-what is the deal?!!!!we have thieves that can break into anything-use the nixon approach to get to obama and prosecute him as a terrorist

  2. Shocking! Lets also be prepared for protests that turn violent because business owners could be attacked for exercising sound business and management principles-to face an adverse business climate-cut costs by reducing staff. This will be deemed “the revenge of the 1%”

    BTW-I think voter fraud carried the day
    Either way American business and industry and society with it are in for
    extremely rocky times.

    Stupid is not fixable.

    1. See this video of an admittedly old interview of Bill Keller (O’Reilly Factor): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m02PsH_yWa4

      A Baptist friend noticed that in 2012 none of the services urged people to vote
      unlike in previous elections. I blame the following:
      1) The moochers
      2) Democrat party operatives committing voter fraud
      3) Democrat party judges who threw out GOP observers from polling places
      4) Catholics who go to church and who voted for Obama
      5) Catholics and Evangelicals and others who stayed home due to misguided thinking
      6) Liberal media who has given Obama a pass since day one
      7) Cowardly black pastors and white ones (especially Catholic priests) who did not inform the sheep that OBAMA (by name) was an enemy of Christian values and practice.

      Far less turned out in 2012 vs. 2008.
      This is a fact. the blame goes to many.

      1. I agree with Bill Mc above, BUT as long as you, we, us’s, keep letting the GOP off the hook, send out moderate after moderate, we will continue to lose. If Karl Rove keeps opening his mouth, you’ll lose more conservatives. If Bohner stays as speaker, you’ll lose more conservatives. The next option is to leave the GOP and transfer all conservatives to a new Party that accepts conservatives not sidelines them. PERIOD. Or accept perpetual failure as the future for the GOP.

        Now in the dependant/welfare state we are in, the term, “Does the shoe fit” no longer can be used. The new term is, Does the flip-flop fit?”

        1. FYI to all:

          407,000 Votes in Four States.
          “…4 states, with a collective margin of, 406,348 for Obama, add up to 69 electoral votes. Had Romney won 407,000 or so additional votes in the right proportion in those states, he would have 275 electoral votes.” And numerous precincts reported head-scratching turnout and pro-Obama vote majorities in those states… as if the dead rose up and voted or something.”

          1. To slam dunk this the Democrats, I believe, carried out massive voter fraud and facilitated it. I think this was a stolen election. In Peru you have to have a government photo ID that even very poor people who earn less than $300/month obtain-costs appx. $7. This ID (with a fingerprint & signature to further enhance security) is confronted with a voting register at the voting precinct with a photo as well of the voter. Those who vote sign; give their fingerprint AND have their finger dipped in blue ink that takes days to wash off. Are we proud to have a voter system worse than a poor third world country?

      2. I voted (it was a small ordeal to do so);
        called radio shows to point out why Obama was offering terrible leadership and did what I could. So the “shoe” doesn’t apply to me but it does apply to millions who have their head in the sand and finally applies to those who persistently looked the other way with Obama when presented
        with reasons about his ineligibility.
